Modern Wealth Management Appoints J.P. Rankin as Chief Compliance & Legal Officer

Rankin brings more than a decade of legal experience to help the firm establish and maintain a national, cohesive compliance program

MONTEREY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Modern Wealth Management (“Modern Wealth”), a registered investment adviser (RIA) founded to meet the evolving needs of today’s financial professionals and their clients, today announced the hire of J.P. Rankin as Chief Compliance & Legal Officer. Operating out of Modern Wealth’s Lenexa, Kansas office, Rankin will draw upon his decade-plus of legal experience to oversee and manage the firm’s compliance strategy, while also serving as an advisor to the leadership team on legal considerations concerning acquisition activity.

Prior to joining Modern Wealth, Rankin was the Chief Compliance Officer at CreativeOne Wealth, where he played an integral role in the creation and implementation of the firm’s compliance program. Rankin has also held various legal and compliance roles at Advisors Excel, the Office of the Kansas Securities Commissioner and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. Rankin earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of Kansas School of Law in 2013 and a Master of Laws in Wealth Management from the Texas A&M University School of Law in 2022.

“As Modern Wealth continues our nationwide expansion, J.P.’s extensive legal and compliance acumen will help us solidify our legal department,” said Jason Gordo, president of Modern Wealth. “With his oversight, Modern Wealth’s advisors will be equipped with cohesive and streamlined compliance processes to serve their clients more efficiently.”

Since launching with $200 million in equity financing in April and most recently announcing its fifth acquisition of Martin James, Modern Wealth has continued to build and improve upon its full suite of wealth management services, particularly through strategic acquisitions and the appointment of experienced wealth management professionals. Modern Wealth recently formed its Partnership Development team, tasked with accelerating the firm’s growth initiatives, and has onboarded both Stephen Tuckwood, CFA®, as Director of Investments and Nicole Bittner as Head of Growth Operations to oversee the firm’s investment management and growth strategies, respectively.

«What ultimately drew me to Modern Wealth was the vast leadership and industry experience Jason Gordo, Mike Capelle and Gary Roth bring to the business, as well as the firm’s scalable and efficient operations,” said Rankin. “The firm has already experienced rapid growth since its founding, and I’m looking forward to augmenting Modern Wealth’s existing compliance procedures to ensure our advisors’ and clients’ best interests are put first as we continue to scale.”
